  • Beef jerky and round steak??
    Does anyone have any good recipes for beef jerky? What is a good cut of meat to use for it? Can cuts other than flank steak or beef brisket be used?

    Also, this week, round steak is on sale. Does anyone have any good tasty ideas for round steak.

    Does not anyone have any ideas for this??


  • RE: Beef jerky and round steak??
    Hi, when I make jerky I use ground beef and use the gun that came from Wal-Mart. My little people really like it as they can eat it much better. IF you do a web-search for jerky, you will get lots of info/recipes about using ground and sliced beef.

    You can vary the spiciness of this by the amount of jalapenos used.

    Beef Jerky

    1 bottle Worcestershire sauce
    1 bottle liquid smoke
    1 Tablespoon black pepper
    2 Tablespoons salt
    2 teaspoons onion powder
    2 teaspoons garlic powder
    1 Tablespoon MSG (Accent salt)
    4 jalapeno peppers, optional

    Combine all in blender or food processor. Marinate meat overnight. Drain and dry in dehydrator according to manufacturer's directions. Makes 5-10 pounds.

    (Recipe can be cut in half to do smaller amounts of meat

    It has been quite a while since we had a dehydrater. My DD used to make this, when she still lived at home. I asked her what kind of meat she used. She said she had the butcher cut the meat in slices for her. I guess beef steak would be a good choice. A lot of people who hunt deer use deer meat.


    1-1/2 lbs meat
    2 TBSP. liquid smoke
    1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
    1/3 tsp. garlic powder
    1/3 tsp. pepper
    1 tsp. monosodium glutamate (MSG)
    1 tsp onion powder
    1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
    1/4 cup soy sauce

    Mix all ingredients together, except the meat.
    Don't overlap the meat. Let meat marinate in sauce for 12 hours or overnight, in the refrigerator. Dry in dehydrater untiul it cracks when bent but doesn't break.

    It has been so long since we made it, I don't remember how long it took. This is a really good recipe.

    round steak would make great jerky :)


  • RE: Beef jerky and round steak??
    This is a really good jerky recipe.
    Beef Jerky
    3 lbs. brisket(cut on the grain with a sharp knife)
    1 T salt
    1 t onion powder
    1 t garlic powder
    1 t pepper
    1/3 cup worchestershire sauce
    1/2 cup soy sauce
    Cut meat into strips 1/2 inch wide and 1/4 inch thick. Mix salt, onion and garlic powder, pepper, worchestershire sauce and soy sauce then pour over meat and marinate overnight, in refridgerato. Dry meat in a very low oven temp. over night or till dry.
    (Before drying roll the meat with a rolling pin between paper towels to get out excess juice and place on large pieces of tin foil on your oven racks. After meat is done, store in tightly closed jar.)
  • RE: Beef jerky and round steak??
    Thank you so much for the help with the beef jerky.

    Does anyone have any recipes that they have tried with round steak.

    Thanks again.

  • RE: Beef jerky and round steak??
    Hi Pam,
    I always use round steak for jerky. I don't have access to my recipe books right now for an actual recipe, but basically what I do is trim ALL the fat from the meat, slice it in long 1/4" wide strips, season it with lots of garlic powder, chili powder, black pepper and about three Tbs of brown sugar. Toss in a bowl to coat. Then I pour enough soy sauce over it to coat all the meat and place it in a zip-lock bag, squeeze all the air out and put it in the fridge overnight, turning occasionally to make sure all the meat soaks up the spices and soy sauce. Add more sauce if it appears to have absorbed it all.
    I bought a set of 3 stacking cooling racks to make jerky on(you make more in less time) and fill them with the meat. i place them directly on the grills in my smoker and smoke them at a low temperature until the meat turns dark and tough. you can also do this in the oven by placing the racks on a cookie sheet, but you don't get the rich smoky flavor. If you do it in the oven add a Tbs or two of liquid smoke to the marinade before putting the meat in the zip-lock.

    I've used beef Rump roast for making jerky.... sliced very thin, about an 1/8-1/4 in. thick. You could use any of the above mentioned marinade recipes with this.
  • RE: Beef jerky and round steak??
    I make jerky using an inside round roast of about 4 pounds. I buy them on sale and ask the butcher to slice it about an 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Then I trim off any fat or gristle. I use the same mix of stuff but different measurements. so for me it would be 3 tablespooons of worchestershire, 1 tablespoon of liquid smoke, a few shakes of tabasco, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder,onion powder, pepper, salt and I think that is it. As I am in Toronto I am trying to remember just what goes in it because I don't live here. The one post mentions bottles of liquid smoke and worcestershire sauce. That would be excessive for me. If you want me to actually post my recipe when I am back home tomorrow I will. Marlene

    I got back earlier. My plane was early. How about that. Anyhow I said if you wanted it I would send my recipe which I just used last week. With this recipe I had a 4 1/2 pound inside round roast sliced to between 1/8 and 1/4 inch thick.

    Beef Jerky

    5 lb. beef, cut into strips
    1/4 cup soy sauce
    1 tbsp. worcestershire sauce
    1 tsp. garlic powder
    1 tsp. onion powder
    1 tsp. black pepper, cracked if possible
    couple of shakes of tabasco
    1 tbsp. liquid smoke

    Place the strips of beef in marinade and let soak for about 24 hours. Remove from marinade allow to air dry for at least one hour. Place in the oven on foil at the lowest temperature and dry until beef is able to crack when bent or dry in a dehydrator.

    Now I gave my youngest son half of the finished jerky in Toronto on Friday night and Saturday night he had already inhaled it. I guess that would be an endorsement? Marlene
